Windows 7: Show Us Your Rig [2]

Looks like I'll be heading for that... I'll go to the nearest PC shop to check if they can get it... Like I said, it's my lack of self-esteem that prevents me of ordering that and doing it myself. But don't worry, I'll negotiate a price with the shop.

When it gets close to 73C, maybe 68C it will start to throttle itself down to keep from damaging the CPU.
In that screenie, those are just the core temps and they actually aren't that bad. Not great, but certainly not dangerous.

If it were the the Tcase (overall CPU) temps - then you'd have to start panicking

(Core temps are always higher than Tcase temps)

Cooler master shouldn't disappoint you. I have always recommend replacing the stock coolers with more efficiently designed models, even on most business machines with low demand that I have built, especially with Intel, as I have found them to be completely inefficient.

Now, Just for a test, I'll run a convertion of 34 FLAC audio files into MP3s 320kbps CBR at slow high quality using Lame. The encoder is dBPowerAmp v12. This baby is multi-threaded.

So, I start the convert... here is screenshot midway done :

(Deleted)

Notes :
1. HyperThreading is desactivated
2. TurboBoost is also desactivated

Maximum heat, from Core 1 to Core 4, 73C 71C 70C and 69C. I believe the threasold for a Core i7 is 73C. After that, the CPU diminishes performances to avoid overheat and damage.

What do you think guys... is it OK? I desactivated HyperThreading and TurboBoost because it would nearly reach 90C under load. Desactivating TurboBoost didn't do much HyperThreading did help reduce the heat of a good 10C under full load.

In fact, that was a report of my PC after almost 2 months being up

Hi Mate,

I was replying to the "Maximum heat, from Core 1 to Core 4, 73C 71C 70C and 69C." and "it would nearly reach 90C under load"

Seemed to be high, I wouldn't want my system running that hot on a regular basis, or even occasional basis.

Mine runs at 56C at 3.84 GHz when maxed out, EIST and Turboboost enabled, and runs at 27C at idle.

With an after market cooler he can turn back on the hyperthreading and turboboost, have cool temps and the speed that we crave
And maybe sneak in a wee bit of an OC just to spice it up a little.

I have been watching my heat levels from seeing what you guys are writing made me want to watch it.
From what I have seen you guys say. My is running just fine right. It is all stock. I have never touched it or anything.

OMG!!! I just went and looked at your RIG. I would be crying if I was you. I feel so bad for you. I am terribly sorry. I would donate money to you. If I had any to. But then again. If I had any extra money. It would probably already be invested in a computer build of my own. I want to build one so bad. But I just do not have the money at all. I barely can pay my internet bill. I really do feel very sorry for you. I hope you get a machine that is at least half the machine that one was. That is probably the most amazing computer I have ever seen. The things I would do for a computer like that. I wish you the best of luck. I hope your new machine comes out twice as good as that one. Look at it this way. Now you have an excuse to buy all those new parts you wanted and to build a completely new machine.

Finally finished (for quite a while anyways)

Here's my spagetti monster/love child:



I liked that I used flex tube between the vid cards as it makes it easier to pull a card if needed. Also glad my memory came with a dual fan clip-on as it helps the Northbridge stay cooler. (It was getting kinda hot with no air from a CPU cooler.)

I'd also suggest a fan/radiator for each processor that you have on water. I get by just fine with the 2 radiator/dual fan Swiftech unit, but I do have two upper case fans blowing into the radiator fans. (Thought I was kinda clever by mounting the unit above the case. )

Sys specs are in my sig below and I'm less than 1 month into using Windows 7. I like it!

WEI is 7.6 (in WEI thread) for CPU and SSD. Show Us Your WEI (2)

Note to readers - if you can swing the price of a SSD, get one! You'll love it!
